Forum: general Subject: ask if anyone knows of

Hi, I am new to the archive -6months or so- I hope I am posting in the right forum(if no,my apologies)and I'd like to ask if anyone knows of a sword and sorcery movie set in "olden-times"- wayold - that may be foreign, definitely older made flick(+,-40 or more years probably) and may or may not be PD. Also, I have seen this in the US several times growing up and I don't Think it was dubbed-subbed but that is a possibility?

One memorable scene in the beginning is an aged warrior in somewhat suspended animation being sought out in maybe mountain-like lands(maybe;not sure of location) and then revived with a magic potion so he could "save them" from the Bad guy or something bad anyway.

Next standout-ish scene is a bad guy(though not main bad guy i don't think)who's a very obese,giant of a man with kind of middle eastern sinbad the sailor type looking garb(turban,etc maybe)eating a similarly Large drumstick or meat-on-bone.This bad guy So large it requires like 50-60 plus "normal" sized men to carry him kind of human taxi-cab style from underneath with two poles supporting a platform, you know?

When I say Giant I mean that a "normal" size man would also be much, much smaller height-wise as well, Much.

That's all I got but all else I can remember is that it's movie goodness is right up there with "the Magic Sword" co-starring Basil Rathbone, Maybe slightly better if you like that kind of thing?

Thanks upfront and am looking forwards to a reply:-)
